welp, thx for the comments all -
i think maybe I'll sell a few of the extras after the show - they're going to be 3 color 9"x24".
If anyone's interested in hearing what kind of music this is for - here's a few random mp3's...
I agree w/Greenish. I don't particularly like this, but it doesn't bother me, either. I would probably go to this show after seeing the poster, just to see if I liked them. My musical tastes are EXTREMELY eclectic. I like SOME of almost all kinds of music. I thinks it's a very effective piece.
i agree with texectution a few comments down how in an age when shocking images have raised our tolerance level, this is above and beyond man. wow. i saw this for point 2 seconds and i even said aloud what the fuck! this is deffinetly a what the fuck moment and it works. after controling the vomit relfex i think this is very well designed poster. i wouldn't go to this show, but it would deffinelty attract someone who would. thats successfull design in my opinion for what its worth.
whiteyhouston: if this poster makes you vow not to see cancerslug, than you're probably not the type that would enjoy a cancerslug show in the first place.
The same goes for me when I see a boring scribly psuedo-hip thingy in pastel - probably won't be interested in the show it's promoting.
true. people seeing the ad is the core reason of a poster but if you really think these things will be seen by anyone who would go in alabama is not very likely. i bet you someone sees this that's on their way to church and takes it upon themselves to do the god's work and clean all the poles.
wheat paste like you have never wheat pasted before!
stalions: hahaha - people say the same sort of things about the band.
All this is suppossed to say is "made you look" - and I imagine it'll do it's job on the streets of alabama. What good is a poster that doesn't make you look?
